to afghanistan shortly after the fall of the taliban. as you know, under the taliban government, little girls weren't allowed to go to school or taught to read and there are penalties for those in privacy and secret to teach them to read. i never been more proud of our government because one of the things the u.s. aid department did was set up reading programs for these little girls, many of them now 13-15, never in their life had a chance to read. i went into this room and it was very crowded and smelly because there was not much running water in afghanistan at the time and was very dirty but here these little girls were learning -- these young women were learning to read and i -- we talked with them through a translator and one of them told me one day when they learned to read, she wanted to write a book. i was at the time writing my book and i said well, is there something i could say on your behalf in my book until you get around to writing yours? and her answer through the translator was immediate. and she said, women should be free to go to work and to go to school and to choose their o

, the taliban and associated forces in response to the 9/11 attacks. and we may also use force consistent with our inherit right of national self-defense. there is nothing in international law that bans the use of remotely piloted aircraft for the purpose or that prohibits us from usinglet l force against our enemies outside of an active battle field. at least when the country involved can sense or is unable or unwilling to take action against the threat. second, targeted strikes are ethical. without question, the ability to target a specific individual from hundreds or thousands of miles away raises profound questions. here i think it is useful to consider such strikes against the basic principles of the law of war that governor the use of force. targeted strikes conform to the principle of necessity. the requirement that the target have definite military value. in this armed conflict, individuals who are part of al qaeda or associated forces are legislated mate, military targets. we have the authority to target them with lethal force, just as we target enemy leaders in past conflicts. s
're leaving it in the hands-of-the-pakistani intelligence, of the taliban, to tell the narrative around why these drone strikes are happening and they are doing it in a way that obviously is painting the united states as a real horrible enemy when in fact that's not the truth, and so i think that there's a whole messaging issue around here that goes beyond president obama's individual legacy and is really about how americans are viewed throughout the world. >> stay right there. when we come back we'll talk about why steven seeingal has been called into the service in the phoenix of desert, seriously. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics.

settlement with the taliban parts would that be useful? >> well, first of all i think the terrible bomb blast do underline what i think emphasized throughout the presentation is that terrorism remains one of the most serious threats we face, and this is one of the issues united states and india has worked on closely together. i'm not sure that it could be homegrown terrorism. we have had a number of tax which have been traced to inspiration outside the country i don't know yet. we will have to wait until the investigation reports are being completed. but counterterrorism certainly has attracted the attention of our government at the highest levels. we have developed a number of new mechanisms, both in terms of intelligence, in terms of the coordination between central government and the states because policing the estate subject. and, indeed, for instant checking and working out -- but like every other country, we are on the frontline of terrorism. we perhaps a little more than others, and we need to reinforce our efforts. and we will certainly be hoping to work very closely with our u.s. par
